The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control announced on Monday that two persons have tested positive for coronavirus.
This is even as the country’s daily COVID-19 count maintained a relatively low figure on Monday, with two new cases.
The agency disclosed via its website on Tuesday morning that the two fresh cases were reported in Kaduna and Rivers States.
This, it added, brings Nigeria’s total cases to 254,659.
The centre recorded 17 COVID-19 cases on Sunday.
The centre also said that Lagos State and the FCT in the last three did not report any new cases.
The NCDC said COVID-19 has claimed 3,142 lives across the country since the outbreak in 2020.
It noted that seven patients were discharged after recovering from the infection, adding that 249,206 people have so far recovered from the virus in the country.
